Duke Electric

Duke Electric

We like to say we work on the weird and wonderful at Duke Electric, a well established family owned business in Hamilton, ON. We can rebuild a 50 year-old DC motor that’s impossible to find parts for but critical to a million dollar piece of equipment. Troubleshoot the failed generator on an ocean-going freighter that was supposed to leave port yesterday. From reverse engineering a motor to replace a legacy product that’s no longer available to supplying brake parts to keep the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ dams from leaking, Duke has done it!

If we added up the years of experience (since 1933!) at Duke, we’d be into our third century. Times have changed—it’s less about hands on the tools and more about technology now—but we still approach each job the same way. It’s an art. It takes skill, patience, imagination and a kind of fierceness to do it well.

Duke Electric is in the hands of the third generation now—but what makes us strong is the brains and sweat of every person who’s put their hands on the tools in our shop. Come join our fantastic team!
